Still Hovering at 142-145

Tuesday, June 01, 2010


I'm still hovering between 142-145. Not bad, but I've been trying to get motivated and serious about losing the last 7-10 lbs. SO far it has not worked out.

Last week, I did good at the exercise part, I jogged about 6.5 miles and did a video (biggest losers) twice. But the eating part was not that great.

This week, so far I've jogged 2.5 miles (Sun), did the biggest loser's workout last night (Mon), and this morning I started my day with an ab workout.

Tonight, if it's not raining I plan to jog 2.5-3 miles then tomorrow morning, I'd like to start my day with 1 mile video + the ab workout and stick with that all week. I'm alternating my evenings (Wed off and Sat a "make up" day if needed) with jogging and the biggest losers workout. I'm doing the evening stuff with my husband. (: Yeah!

Now, if I could only get through this week, I will hopefully stay motivated for the rest of June! I may try to start tracking my food again, we'll see what happens!

God Bless

    Thank you both for the encouragement! If I can get back into tracking my calories I may be able to try to breakfast thing! Sounds interesting. I tried eating at the high end of my cal range one day and lower range the next day to mix up my metabolism a while back and that worked, so I wouldn't be surprised if the breakfast would work.

    I hit a plateau a while back, but happened to read an article about eating a big breakfast, of at least 400 calories. The crux of the article was that eating a big breakfast would help move the pounds. I was a little sceptical, but moved some of my lunch items, e.g. a boiled egg, a glass of milk, to breakfast time.

    I didn't increase my overall daily calorie intake, I just moved some things around. I can't say for sure that increasing my breakfast calorie intake worked, but............

    I was stuck in the 190's for weeks, and having eaten a big breakfast for only one week, I dropped almost four pound down to the high 180's.

    If you try this, I'd be interested in knowing if it works.

    Good luck!

    You are doing great Sweetie, and believe me getting up in the morning and working out is motivation on its own emoticon

    Have a great day emoticon
